Block of arts

January 01, 1998|By John Dorsey

"Artist Housing: The Eleventh Year," which opens at Halcyon Gallery on Tuesday, is an exhibit celebrating Baltimore's official housing block for artists.

Eleven years ago, the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Art and Culture, working with the Washington Hill community, north of Fells Point, renovated a block of houses at Baltimore Street and Broadway for live-in studios for artists. The block now houses visual artists, writers, musicians, arts administrators, a lighting designer and a musicologist.

Most of the visual artists participate in "Artist Housing," which includes works by photographers Laura Ringler and Bryan Burris, printmaker Susan Mangan, mixed-media artists Leslie Schwing and Maria Theresa Fernandez, and painters Michael Knoch, Angelina Gualdoni and Char Russell. The show opens with a reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

At Halcyon Gallery, 909 Fell St., starting with a reception Tuesday night from 7 to 9; runs through Feb. 22, 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays-Sundays. Call 410-276-1651.
